This is the Day the Lord has Made
SCRIPTURE READING: Psalms 118:24
This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Jeremiah 17:7 says, ‘Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD’.
I want to share with you how I started this morning. As I opened my eyes early in the morning, my thought went straight to my Heavenly Father. I began to thank Him for waking me up. I thanked Him for a peaceful night rest. I thanked Him for His love and protection. I thanked Him for keeping His promise of protection over me and my family. And I began to bless the day and prophesied beautiful outcomes.
That is the right attitude to cultivate; a thankful heart and a heart that rejoices to see another beautiful day; the day that the LORD Himself has made.
You must always be determined in your heart to go through the day with a thankful heart. Do everything without murmuring or complaining. And you will see the finger of God move in your direction. He is a good God. Do not forget to sow a seed of love in the lives of others. Enjoy doing your job, no matter how insignificant it might be. We are destined to move from glory to glory; so do not despise the days of little beginnings (Zachariah 4:10).
There is a great future ahead of you and you must do everything to fulfil that destiny. As you walk in your calling and purpose in life, trust God with your decisions, inquire of Him and let Him lead you in the path of right choices.
Do not trust or lean on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5), instead seek Him to make the right choices and decisions for you. Let God be your hope; no one has ever been put to shame who trusted in God. The patriarchs of old, Abraham, Isaac, Joseph and Daniel were never put to shame. Your hope in God therefore can never be disappointed.
Father in heaven; let your name be glorified in my life and in the lives of my loved ones. Help us to lean and trust in you and not in our own understanding.
Guide us in all our way and let your glory fill the earth, in Jesus’ name.
Point to ponder on
Trust in the Lord with all your being.
